Abstract: In an EU FP7 Era.NET RUS project (www.somecat.org), analysis was undertaken of the status quo and the potential for using Social Media (SoMe) in teaching, learning, and research in higher education (HE) in four participating countries (Gulbahar 2014; Kilis, Gulbahar, Rapp 2014). The analysis applied a mixed-method approach: interviews/focus groups (n=213), an online teaching-style survey (n=39) using exploratory factor analysis (Gulbahar, Aslan et al. 2014), which resulted in the development of a social media strategy for HE (Gulbahar & Rapp 2014). Potential benefits of social media usage for HE teaching, learning, and research were confirmed. However, many instructors find it difficult to integrate the subject they want to teach through the application of meaningful instructional design and the use of technology. Consequently, based on the research results, a social media toolkit for education (www.socialmediaforeducation.org), targeted at HE instructors, was developed, and subsequently validated (Kilis et al. 2014).
